Question Fuel pump replacement

1998 Ford Taurus GL , 160,000 miles needs a fuel pump. How many hours would a garage charge for the labor? Service area of Massachusetts.

Thank you for your comments.

Motors time guide says 1.7 hours. So around the 2-2.5 hour mark should be what to expect from most shops.

It cost about $750 to replace the fuel pump in my Mom's 99 Sable at a Ford dealer.

Just changed the fuel filter in anticipation of taking the Taurus to an independent service garage who will supply the labor (2 1/2 hrs.) and was told it would be less than $200. I purchased the entire complete fuel pump assembly, CarQuest E2198M for less than $95.(closeout) I am in the process of using the car as much as I can to reduce the fuel in the tank.

Thanks to all for your comments.
